BABYMETAL are preparing for the release of their new album Metal Galaxy on Oct. 11. They are dropping some heaters along the way to prepare us for the hits to come.
Today, BABYMETAL released a new song and video for “Shanti Shanti Shanti” today which will appear on their upcoming album. Check it out below.
Fresh off the heels of another single and video “Elevator Girl”, BABYMETAL continue to pepper us with content. Watch the new video below.

In a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Su-Metal stated that they were on very good terms with Yuimetal.
“We’ve been together for a long time,” she said. “Yuimetal is like a family member to this group. … Although she has left, we’ll continue to support her and hope that she can pursue what she’d like to do int he future.”
The group’s manager Kobametal said that after the split, he was concerned the trio’s strong friendship would be broken for good.
“Obviously I was worried about them, but at the same time I respect each member – and both of them have become adults, and each of them are continuing Babymetal because they want to. I definitely appreciate that. There’s a sort of trust between this group and I trust that they want to do it,” Kobametal said.
The manager also spoke about the group’s upcoming record METAL GALAXY and how the duo have worked to make it the best they possibly can.
“I also feel that the way the girls view Babymetal has really resonated within them and they’re now leading the way, discussing the future of Babymetal and how they want to envision and go through these next, coming tours,” he said.
Last month, BABYMETAL revealed how they would like to do a collab with Bring Me The Horizon. While that collab doesn’t appear on the new album, it still has some incredible guest-filled tracks we’re eager to check out.
While there’s no BMTH, the album does contain tracks featuring Tak Matsumoto from B’z, Joakim Brodén from Sabaton, Tim Henson and Scott LePage from Polyphia, Alissa White-Gluz from Arch Enemy and rapper F.HERO.
